    I didnt want to add sugar so I substitute a wild bird seed blend instead, they seem to really love it even with the change!

    Unfortunately Ruth, that is a common myth with no merit.

    Bill Thompson, III, editor of Bird Watcher's Digest and valued part of the American Birding community stated "This topic is hotly debated, but there is no scientific evidence one way or the other. We humans sometimes have trouble digesting large mouthfuls of peanut butter, so is it logical that the same is true for birds? Not really. Birds' bills do not have as much saliva as human mouths, so it is less likely that the peanut butter will get gooey and stuck to the roof. To be safe, it's smart to mix chunky peanut butter with whole oats, raisins, cornmeal, and other ingredients to make it drier and more solid, and thus less sticky when it enters a bird's bill."

    I have used peanutbutter mixed with cornmeal, oatmeal, etc. for years. Actually the birds love it.
